Thank you Jonathan for your help, but I still have a problem.
I have downloaded Windows Messenger 5.1 as suggested.

Now, when I double click on the Messenger icon (in desktop) I get a
window showing the following:
"Repair or Remove Installation" - options are: Repair

I subsequently clicked on "Repair" and installing begins and finishes.

This "Repair" and "Remove" keeps happening whenever I double click on
the Messenger icon (a loop).

I don't seem to be getting very far with Messenger (and my Webcam).

Can you help?
